Love and Tegus
I called Honeybun yesterday over lunch. I know my emotions have been unpredictable to him. They come at me in waves of sadness/self-loathing. I've been trying to handle them on my own, but it just leaves me feeling isolated and weak. I told him I needed help while this storm passes, and he was quick to catch on - I can't love myself right now, so he would love me extra until I bounce back.
Sure enough, I started getting loving texts. He flirted with me on the phone on my drive home, and as soon as I was in the door I was greeted with a tight hug, many kisses, and a tasty dinner waiting. I was showered with love, and for a while it quieted my negative thoughts. I was very thankful. After we ate, he asked if I wanted to see a new friend he'd made today. I was curious, and so we were off to a shop where he had gotten supplies for his vape earlier. They have a pet tegu that Honeybun has fallen in love with - and it was easy to see that she'd fallen for him too. He wants one now. lol!
